Las Vegas Culinary Union members ratify new 5-year contract with Caesars Entertainment

"Caesars decided to go first and show leadership in this community," Pappageorge said.

Part of the labor agreement with Caesars will call for added safety measures for workers.

That will include adding panic buttons for workers, including those facing customers like porters and pool employees.

Roselyn Buie, a cook at the Flamingo and a union member for nearly four decades, says safety concerns were top of mind for negotiators during labor talks.

"Being able to do your work while not being harassed," Buie says. "Doing your work while not wondering if somebody's going to come in and do something because they're angry."
